Hand of Shadows

Hand of Shadows

A guild of thieves who have a strong presence in the city of Seagard, the Hand of Shadows organizes and controls the many illegal outlets of merchandise that pass through that city. They are engaged in a heavy black market and fencing trade and have amassed large amounts of money. They run protection in the parts of the city where the House of Trade cannot regulate. It is rumored that the ultimate goal of the Hand is to overthrow the House of Trade and take control of Seagard for themselves. If this is the case, they have either failed or laid the most careful of plans since the Hand has been in existence since X425.

Recently, the Hand has begun fighting the House on the streets at night. Their headquarters, the huge boarding house known as the Bleak Visitor on the north docks, has been under siege nightly. War is come between the House and the Hand.
